Thriving in Tomball
Veolia’s Tomball location has been ideal for fostering success. Surrounded by a robust, qualified workforce, and near the hydrocarbon and petrochemical hub, the Tomball Technology Center offers Veolia the resources they need to succeed.
“Our general geographic location allows us to attract exceptional talent from around the area. More and more people want to live in an area like Tomball, which isn’t too crowded, but is close to everything you need.”
The Tomball Business & Technology Park’s nature-oriented environment also fits hand-in-hand with the company’s commitment to sustainability.
“If you are entertaining any type of customer, you need an attractive location. The atmosphere that we have paints a picture and sends a message of being environmentally-focused. When people come out and see it, they’re impressed,” added Greene.
Even ahead of location, Greene emphasized how critical the people are to Veolia’s success. The company employs approximately 60 people in Tomball, whose knowledge, efficiency, and customer-focused approach allow them to complete a couple of million tests per year at the facility, according to Greene.
As Veolia looks to the future, they see an opportunity to further enhance how they assist their customers. New testing systems, including predictive analytics, will allow Veolia to locate problems sooner and help customers be proactive instead of reactive.
“Engagement with the customer is our top priority. You have to know what they need,” said Greene. “Here at Tomball, we’re going to continue to engage with our customers. We like to collaborate with them to avoid working in a vacuum.”
